You have to really be an old school nerd to be into baulders gate. Lol. It looks awesome though.
I dont feel that old but when people say they've never heard of it or any of the games I grew up playing it starts setting in lol

Haha got me, I only have 16. Might have to upgrade.

Because idk what I'm doing and it sounds cool. I ran that nzxt thing and flight sim was using up like 90%+ of the gpu usage
Well there is some youtube videos that explain how to do it, its not hard to do but you do run a risk of burning out some components if you push them too hard. I would always choose to upgrade rather than overclock unless you cant resell/dont care about your old stuff and dont mind the risk.

Don’t buy a 20 card. Just wait for the 3080 to be back in stock. It’s so much better for less money

I would look into building your own, its really not that difficult (Extra easy when you use Pick parts. Build your PC. Compare and share. or a site like that). I built my first computer with that site and a couple basic youtube videos and have no regrets, got the exact case and look I wanted at the best price point.

Whenever I get the new GPU I’m going to have to get a new case because my case is way too small for any of the new cards, and at that point I may as well just upgrade everything else

When do they get released?
3080s were just released within the past couple weeks (they're just out of stock currently). I highly recommend a 3080 over any 2000 series card. I also highly recommend NOT going through ibuypower. Build the PC yourself. I know it sounds scary but it's not. You're not really building, you're more-so just assembling. There's so many guides on youtube for how to assemble a pc. You'll get much more bang for your buck.

The Zen 3 announcement for AMD is only 2 days away too. If they continue on the trend line of their previous architecture changes this should be a significant release.

EVGA is placing people into a purchase queue if they sign up for alerts on 3080s listed through them. People that signed up for updates after the card got announced are getting emails that they have a 5 hour reservation window to buy one or they lose their spot.

I signed up earlier but it was at least 12 hours after they announced they were doing this. On the bright side we might have better luck with the AMD Big Navi when that gets officially announced at the end of the month.

Big Navi gonna need to be badass to compete with the 3080 but we’ll see. AMD is doing awesome stuff with the CPUs(this coming from a life long intel fanboy) but they still haven’t really matched nvidia on GPUs yet.
